Here is something I read today.  Guess it applies for Finland as-well smiley

+15°C / 59°F - This is as warm as it gets in Norway, so we'll start
here. People in Spain wear winter-coats and gloves. The Norwegians
are out in the sun, getting a tan.

+10°C / 50°F The French are trying in vain to start their central
heaating. The Norwegians plant flowers in their gardens.

+5°C / 41°F Italian cars won't start. The Norwegians are cruising in
cabriolets.

0°C / 32°F Distilled water freezes. The water in Oslo Fjord gets a
little thicker.

-5°C / 23°F People in California almost freeze to death. The
Norwegians have their final barbecue before winter.
-10°C / 14°F The Brits start the heat in their houses. The Norwegians
start using long sleeves.

-20°C / -4°F The Aussies flee from Mallorca. The Norwegians end their
Midsummer celebrations. Autumn is here!!!

-30°C / -22°F People in Greece die from the cold and disappear from
the face of the earth. The Norwegians start drying their laundry
indoors.

-40°C / -40°F Paris start cracking in the cold. The Norwegians stand
in line at the hotdog stands.

-50°C / -58°F Polar bears start evacuating the North Pole. The
Norwegian army postpones their winter survival training awaiting real
winter weather.

-70°C / -94°F The false Santa moves south. The Norwegian army goes
out on winter survival training.

-183°C / -297.4°F Microbes in food don't survive. The Norwegian cows
complain that the farmers' hands are cold.

-273°C / -459.4°F ALL atom-based movement halts. The Norwegians start
saying "Faen, it's cold outside today."

-300°C / -508°F Hell freezes over, Norway wins the Eurovision Song
Contest.

Not this year, it's not! It's 50F today, and the girls are flying. As I posted in another section, I peeked under the cover for the first time, and saw a big ol' bunch of bees, so I think they're doing well.
